KFAR SAVA, Israel - May 3, 2022 - Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC), a leading provider of networking and data infrastructure solutions, today announced that an existing customer, one of the SD-WAN market's largest vendors, has placed purchase orders (POs) for Silicom's SD-WAN Smart Platforms in the aggregate amount of $15 million with delivery requested during 2022, and that shipments against these POs have already begun. In parallel, the client's forecasts call for equipment valued at more than $25 million to be delivered each year for the next several years.
"The acceleration of our business with this major client reflects booming demand for SD-WAN solutions, which companies of all types, from telcos to industrials to retail, are adopting," commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom's CEO. "In addition, it is a vote of confidence in our company, reflecting the fact that we have been able to complete promised deliveries despite the worldwide shortage of components. While our ability to deliver has been somewhat compromised, our efforts to compensate, including through innovation and by building up our inventory, have so far been successful.
"As we predicted when we initiated our SD-WAN strategy five years ago, this space is now entering the mainstream, with the growing momentum of disaggregated and decoupled architectures driving more and larger design wins for Silicom. We believe, and feedback from the market confirms, that this trend will continue, positioning us for steep growth as a provider of must-have enabling building blocks for today's networks."
Mr. Orbach continued, "While our ability to deliver, given the unpredictable nature of the components crisis, may continue to be challenging, given the sheer size of our pipeline and the speed with which the SD-WAN and 5G/O-RAN markets are coming of age, we believe we remain positioned for strong multi-year growth."
